Year 5 compose music in 3 time.

Year 5 composed music in 3 time today. This is not easy as we naturally play and sing more often in 4 time. Each group had someone playing the beat, a drone and another person composing an ostinato pattern using the pentatonic scale. Some groups managed to put in some dynamics as well as stay in time, ​​to make it more interesting. Have a look at some of the group videos below.
